Post: It’s 10 O’Clock, Do You Know Where Your Husband Is?
The timing of this piece couldn’t be better for me! I’ve been married a year to a dude that was my friend first, so our social world melding has never been an issue. I’d like to say we’ve been pretty social and we’ve always been a “couple” in most of our friends’ lives, so it’s always been pretty easy to show up to shenanigans as a duo or individually. So yes, the wedding bells chimed just over a year ago and recently, my boy decided to purchase Yankee season tix (something I could totally have been a part of…had I not been a die-hard Mets fan, oh yes, a mixed marriage).
The tickets were bought and then low and behold, a month or so later, the third piece of love and marriage came into play—the baby carriage. I shall be spending my summer (blissfully… maybe) bloated while he will be having as one friend quipped “the best summer of his life.” While first indignant that I don’t get my own “farewell” summer in the same sense, I’m actually super-stoked that fate got him those tickets. Reasonable and fair fella that he is, I can’t see him purchasing them had he even KNOWN about the pregnancy let alone when a baby is fully in the picture, which only makes me want him to have this chance more. This transition is a fairly huge one and I don’t think anyone will ever judge if I need to blow off steam or need some time with my buds. So I think the same should go for him. My greatest fear is to become the dreaded couch couple too, and I think setting the tone of our new lifestyle now could help us avoid becoming TOO boring.
I think what makes this work for us above all is that I trust him! His going out is just to see the damn Yankees, not to forget his life and shirk all responsibility. I would also understand that folks might not be too vibealicious with their significant other going out on the town solo, but in most cases, I wouldn’t be surprised to discover a lack of trust in that relationship.
Just one knocked-up broad’s opinion!
